Live Aid Against All Odds
Permalink  
 


I'm just watching this on Youtube.

 

Bob did what he was good at.  He pulled it off.  How many people would have even dared to try to pull something like this off i wonder. AND actually be able to do it?

 

I can't believe people are so derisive about him. usually the pig ignorant ones. all because he got rich.  it really just shows me just how much money clouds peoples' judgements.  people are so dispicable about bob. and all because he got rich.

 

it so saddens me that even some who i thought were more intelligent, still scorn him.

 

the better sort see past the money hooray!

 Steady!  I think even he has said spare me the sanctification routine. Although I agree with JOA that he had the contacts and the personality to pull off Live Aid and Band Aid that few other stars of the time had.

A lot of the press prattle verges on the vile. Never quite understood why it got like that in the first place and let's face it,  it began to get nasty 3 years or more before Band Aid.

Yeh met him after rats gig at Aston uni in1983 they were in th bar and were talking to a few of us about the gig he seemed approachable unlike some others who I have crossed paths with when working in wolves when they would come into the store I worked in some who shall remain nameless but reasonably big stars had a bad attitude to the public unlike Bob
